Help For Colorado Ballet

The financially-ailing Colorado Ballet gets the largest grant in its history to help see it through the next season. “The ballet ended its 2002-03 season with a $200,000 deficit, which it is addressing this year with an annual budget cut from $5.6 million to $4.9 million. The reduction also reflects a 34 percent drop in performances, because the company cannot use the Auditorium Theatre, which is closed for renovation.”
